For Employers

Meeting in Public Policy Building

As an employer, you can access the resources of the UMBC Public Policy Department through graduate education, internships and placements.

Graduate Education

Do you know someone who is ready for the next step in their education and professional development? Encourage that person to look into getting a Master or a Ph.D. of Public Policy at UMBC. Students can attend full or part-time, and most classes meet once a week in the evening. Our program gives mid-career professionals the skills and knowledge necessary for advancement to senior level positions. Click here for more information on our graduate degree program.


Consider a Public Policy intern to assist your organization. Internships provide professional experience and training for our students. UMBC Public Policy interns, many of whom have prior work experience, are an excellent resource for employers in the area. Ideally, we like to know about available summer internships by January 1, so we can discuss available internship opportunties with new and returning students.

Student at State House


Public Policy graduates are highly qualified for positions in government, the non-profit sector, and the private sector. Our students have an impressive track record of professional and academic achievements, and must demonstrate a mastery of public policy concepts and analytical tools to graduate from our program. We encourage you to look to these highly qualified students for your recruitment needs.

For information on internships or placements, contact the Department of Public Policy directly
(; 410-455-3201), or contact the UMBC Career Services Center.
